CULT Food Science to invest in MeaTech3D

VANCOUVER — CULT Food Science Corp.  has made an investment in MeaTech 3D Ltd., and international food technology company based in Ness Ziona, Israel.

CULT says the overseas company has been working to develop cellular agriculture protein technology.

MeaTech is reportedly focused on developing and licensing its proprietary three-dimensional printing and customizable biotechnology manufacturing processes to food processing and retail companies that want to manufacture proteins without the need for animal slaughter.

The company purports to have produced a 3.67 oz cultured steak product comprised of real living muscle and fat tissues without any soy or pea protein.

MeaTech has partnered with Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary as well as Effie Epstein to promote cultivated meat at the global level.

“We believe MeaTech is on the leading edge of advancing cultivated meat towards global adoption and is uniquely positioned to be one of the first companies to commercialize their technology. We’re very encouraged by the progress they have made and the significant collaborations they have entered into as a company,” said Lejjy Gafour, president of CULT in a statement.
